Merging is one of the central operations in the field of belief change, which is concerned with aggregating the opinions of individuals. Representation theorems provide a family of merging operators satisfying some natural desiderata for merging beliefs. However, little is known about how these operators can be further distinguished. In the field of social choice, on the other hand, numerous properties have been proposed in order to classify voting rules. In this work, we adapt these properties to the context of merging and investigate how they relate to the standard postulates. Our results thus lead to a more fine-grained classification of merging operators and shed light on the question of which particular merging operator is best suited in a concrete application domain.
